Ancient humans put animal hide over their feet and tied ittogether to protect the feet thousands of years ago.
Shoes were used by our ancient ancestors, we do not know who made the first shoe. The shoe wasn't invented by one person in particular, it just evolved over time.
According to Wikipedia, the idea of shoe polish came about during medieval times. What we call shoe polish today was first distributed by an Irish company called Punch in 1851. For more information see the link in the left hand column. .
The company JW Foster and Sons invented tennis shoes in 1895. Thisstyle of shoe became very popular in the early 1900's.
Cavemen were sick of stepping on rocks all the time. It made their feet hurt.
Although it's hard to tell exactly who was the first to use shoes, the Egyptians used them, as documented in archaeology findings. The Romans are also documented as earlier users of the shoe.
The North Iranian Eurasian nomads known in Europe as Scythians and in Asia as Saka developed an early form of saddle with a rudimentary frame, which included two parallel leather cushions, with girth attached to them, a pommel and cantle with detachable bone/horn/hardened leather facings, leather th…ongs, a crupper, breastplate, and a feltshabrack adorned with animal motifs. These were located in Pazyryk burials finds. These saddles, found in the Ukok Plateau, Siberia were dated to 500-400 BC. Iconographic evidence of a predecessor to the modern saddle has been found in the art of the ancient Armenians, Assyrians, and steppe nomads depicted on the Assyrian stonerelief carvings from the time of Ashurnasirpal II. TheScythians also developed an early saddle that included padding and decorative embellishments. Though they had neither a solid tree nor stirrups, these early treeless saddles and pads provided protection and comfort to the rider, with a slight increase in security. The Sarmatians also used a padded treeless early saddle, possibly as early as the seventh century, BC. And depictions ofAlexander the Great depict a saddle cloth. The earliest saddles were simple pads attached with a surcingle seen by 800 BC, with the saddle tree coming into use circa 200 BC, and paired stirrups by 302 AD. The first 'saddle'(Created by the Sarmations) was basically just a cloth thrown over the horses back, this started in central Asia and changed over time to include a surcingle to hold the cloth on. At some point stirrup straps were added and eventually stirrup irons themselves (they were originally made of wood). The design eventually morphed into the Iberian style of saddle, which is still cloth or leather with rolls in front and back. The saddle was 'redesigned' by the English who wanted a saddle that they could jump in as Iberian saddles are not designed for jumping. That is how the modern English style saddle came about. The western saddle was invented by Mexican Vaquero's who used the Iberian saddle and added a horn to the front to attach ropes and equipment. The western saddle was designed for the riders comfort in mind and not the horses when they were first created. It was the infamous Mr sheen One day when he mounted up on his horse, he found himself in a rather uncomfortable position, he then invented the ingenius device the saddle. At first he skinned a sheep, and used the carcass, but then wondered if the wool might be softer , thus ends our story! valsert gasmer phillops invented the saddle . There are some claims that the Assyrians were the first amongthe eastern Mediterraneans to use a saddle, or at least somethingsimilar to a saddle, but without stirrups. . Others claim that the Sarmatians, a people originally of Iranianstock who lived by the Black Sea, invented the saddle, includingstirrups and spurs, around 365 A.D.. They were skilled horsemen whotrained their horses for use in battle. After the Sarmatians wereconquered by the Goths (of southern Russia) towards the end of thethird century, the saddle concept was taken and developed furtherby European Medieval knights. They gave the seat more padding andadded a pommel which rose high in front of the rider to protect hisstomach from lances during jousts. (MORE)

To prevent the wearing down of the soles of feet and to keep them relitively clean and dry. Do you want to go to school barefoot ? Shoes were invented for protection first, and only became a "fashion statement" much later.
B.C the first shoes were sandals/moccasins, and they were being worn by the Ancient Romans and Greeks, and cave men The exact date we will probably never know but, if you wanted to know an exact date a modern day shoe brand started i.e converse, vans, nike, etc. you could google it:)
The Western saddle was an invention of the American colonists. They were sometimes required to remain in the saddle for many hours at a time - they would ride all day and sleep in swags at night. The formal English saddles were very uncomfortable for this sort of use. The Western saddle has lower st…irrups and a deeper seat. It was invented to provide comfort, not looks (although some Western saddles are beautifully decorated and very valuable.) Its development occurred over time - there was no 'first' Western saddle. It was not invented by any one person, but developed over time to better suit the needs of the pioneers. (MORE)
Shoes likely evolved out of necessity similar to other articles of clothing. Animal hide wrapped around feet is better protection than nothing. Shoes similar to moccasins date beck to Mesopotamia 1600BC. Shoes created to differentiate left and right feet were available in the 1850's.
What a CROC! Invented in 2002 by three Boulder, Colo., boating enthusiasts, Crocs weigh only 6 ounces and are made of a top-secret resin material that molds to your feet, locks out odor and bacteria, and is a snap to clean. Watson puts hers under the faucet, and some people even recommend tossing t…hem in the dishwasher Scott Seamans, is a plastic products developer and Crocs inventor. Scott molded the first Crocs prototype two years ago from material he was working with for the medical industry. Duke Hanson, the cofounder of a company called Crocs. Crocs produces a hugely popular line of lightweight shoes, and over the past three years, they've expanded dramatically. (MORE)

The origin and age of snowshoes are actually not precisely knownunfortunately. It is believed they were invented from 4,000 to6,000 years ago, probably starting in Central Asia.
The first saddles were probably some type of blanket kept on the horse's back by some form of girth, followed by more elaborate designs. The solid tree came later on, though early stirrups came before the solid tree, the modern paired stirrup that attaches to the tree was the last part of the saddle… to become part of the saddle we use today.

When primitive man had to make his way over rocks, he discovered the need for covering his feet to protect them. So the first shoes, which were probably sandals, were mats of grass, strips of hide, or even flat pieces of wood. These were fastened to the soles of the feet by thongs that were then bou…nd around the ankles. Of course, in colder regions, these sandals didn't protect the feet sufficiently, so more material was added and gradually the sandals developed into shoes. Among the first civilized people to make shoes were the Egyptians. They used pads of leather or papyrus, which were bound to the foot by two straps. In order to protect the toes, the front of the sandal was sometimes turned up. The Romans went a step further and developed a kind of shoe called the c This had slits at the side and straps knotted in front. There were different forms of the calceus, to be worn by the different classes of society. In some of the cold regions of the earth, people developed a kind of shoe independently. (MORE)

To dance... I own a pair and I go to a dance school so they were invented for dance. Dance producers say that they are used to catch people's attention as the sound is very different from other shoes and dance shoes!!!
There is much evidence that a foot covering was one of the first things made by our primitive ancestors. Necessity compelled them to invent some method of protecting their feet from the jagged rocks, burning sands, and rugged terrain over which they ranged in pursuit of food and shelter. The histo…ry of human development shows that the importance of protecting the foot was early recognized. Records of the Egyptians, the Chinese and other early civilizations all contain references to shoes. The shoe is repeatedly mentioned in the Bible and the Hebrews used it in several instances with a legal significance, notably in binding a bargain (MORE)
Keds is a brand of canvas shoe with rubber soles, introduced in 1916 by U.S. Rubber.

one way is going on the breeding bar and pressing 'shop' then press equipment and choose which ones you would like but be careful not to choose the wrong kind for example a MG saddle (classical riding saddle) and a saddle WL (western riding saddle)
Cowboys needed a saddle that was comfortable to sit in and work in because they're sitting in that saddle from dawn til dusk. They also needed a saddle that they could rope and herd cattle in, as well as something that was comfortable (relatively speaking) for the horse to wear on his back all day.
Ken Geddes had the first UK Patent. His company Shooshyne Ltd is today run by his son Bill Geddes.
It enabled horsemen to ride horses and thus increase their military effectiveness. The saddle, and especially the stirrup, allowed the horseman to remain on the horse under strenuous riding conditions when the bareback rider may have fallen off.
I wasn't there at the time, but I would say that footwear was created on purpose. Archaeologists have found evidence that early humans learned to wrap their feet in bark, grasses, and animal skins bound with strips of leather and other natural materials. As humans do, they improved upon each method …for covering their feet by trimming, tailoring, and improving the combination of materials, the fit, the wearability and durability. Humans living (and walking) in different climates and terrain made improvements suitable to their own needs. The process has not stopped; right up until today, innovations are still being made.

The saddle pad actually predates the saddle itself. There is no exact year, but when horses were first ridden people used cloth as a barrier between them and the horses back. These were the first saddle pads, and the precursor to the saddle.

It was invented in Asia about 850 BCE. No one knows who invented it. I think the saddle predated the stirrup. The Norman invasion of England used the stirrup, which allowed relative amateurs to ride and to fight.
